Water drip

Got a drip in odd spot. There are brackets holding the handles for the black and grey tanks. Black tank handle is forward, grey is rear. There is a slight drip around one of the two rivets that hold on the bracket for the grey valve. The position is about where bathroom sink is. No leaks under sink. It's only a slight drip from rivet on bracket. Probably not a freshwater leak as we're disconnected from fresh water and pump is off.

Thoughts?

Hm.. Does the drip happen when tanks are full, empty, or all the time?

I'm thinking a minor leak from the drain plumbing to the tank that then runs down into the pan...and weeps out around the rivets. Which could imply a lot more water running around in the pan looking for trouble to get into...

Only a wild guess: Could there possibly be something stuck on the actual valve so that when closed it is not actually closed tight but is being impeded by some foreign object that got into the grey tank, such as a piece of paper, piece of food etc. My guess is based on personal experience in the past, not recently.

Did some research. Took off the panel in the water cabinet and snaked my Gopro into the area where the rivets penetrate. Only thing in this area is is the fresh line and black flush line. Lines were pressured up and no signs of a drip. Only thing it appears that it's from water intrusion while driving in Heavy rains. Sent to airstream and they agreed. Next step is to find all the nooks and crannies and plug up.

Red circle is the rivet that is dripping outside.
